How can I block a redirect to a captive portal with this extension?

I always want to know if I am being redirected to a different name virtual host or IP address. I have just one deny rule for source=
Code: Select all
.*
, dnserror=no. However, this does not seem to catch all redirs.

e.g. visit http://unilever.co.in/ and the 301 redirect to http://www.unilever.co.in/ seems to succeed.
However, the second redirect to http://www.hul.co.in/ is caught.

Are redirs to sub-domains automatically whitelisted, or is something else going on here?

It's been awhile since there was any activity on this thread but I just started using this add-on and have a question, hopefully someone's around who can answer.

I was able to stop redirects on a particular domain, but it redirects several times before it opens the page I want. Every time it redirects, it opens a new tab, which is a dead end of course, but I still have to close each tab which really isn't that much better than just letting it redirect and closing that tab. Is there any way to stop a new tab from opening, for example can it just skip over the redirects and go straight to the proper destination? Or is there a way to close all the new tabs automatically as they're opened? Thanks.

I have tried every way I can think of to block this redirect and no method is working.

http://ad.directrev
http://ad.directrev*
http:\/\/ad.directrev.*

Can you please give some suggestions on how to block this link?

I don't know how to do this regular expressions business, and all I was hoping to do by installing NoRedirect is block the recently-fashionable practice of websites that detect when you're using an ad blocker, and redirect you to a nag page ("We noticed that you're using an ad blocker...).

The first thing I tried was looking up a word on http://www.thesaurus.com. It shows the entries, then goes to the nag page: http://www.thesaurus.com/why-am-i-seeing-ads

So I entered:

Code: Select all
http://www.thesaurus.com/why-am-i-seeing-ads

...into NoRedirect, literally like this:

...but it doesn't work. In other words, I am trying to use NoRedirect as a blacklist on a webpage-by-webpage basis. Is this simply not possible in NoRedirect, or is there an adjustment to the syntax I can make for direct entry of a web address?

Edit: I noticed that the defaults have a caret (^) character prefix, but adding it didn't make a difference.... Also, I noticed that all of the defaults had escaped the dot (.) characters, and I'm now at this:

Code: Select all
^http://www\.thesaurus\.com/why-am-i-seeing-ads

...but it still goes to the nag page. I can't figure it out. If there is some regular expression syntax I can use common for every website that does this, it would be great!
